What is Auricular Therapy?

There is a two way communication between the skin and all organs, glands and tissue of the body. By stimulating certain skin points, or acupuncture points, the healing process of a condition can be assisting in bringing the patient back to health with normal function.

Auricular therapy is a healthcare modality in which the external surface of the ear, or auricle, is stimulated to alleviate pathological conditions in other parts of the body. A channel of energy flow circles the body like meridians circle the globe. The goal of auricular therapy is to balance that energy flow, which runs the body and heals the body. Auricular therapy or ear acupuncture, is similar to acupuncture but concentrates on the ear where Dr Stange uses a small electrical stimulator, not needles.

What can it treat ?

Since every system & tissue type of the body is represented upon the external ear, auricular therapy is considered a potential source for alleviating any disease. For example it is used to facilitate spinal adjustments. The fact that stimulating auricular points helps release muscle spasms makes it useful in enhancing chiropractic adjustments. It tends to stabilize postural realignment achieved by chiropractic procedures. Here are some other common uses of auricular therapy: appetite control, arthritis. asthma, indigestion, migraines, urinary problems, nervous disorders, appendicitis, tonsillitis, dermatitis, allergies, gastric ulcers, insomnia, hepatitis, hypertension, impotency, sunburn, heatstroke, frozen shoulders, tennis elbow, low back pain, smoking, liver conditions, constipation, infertility and many more. There are over 2000 conditions that can be treated by auricular therapy with no age limits. The age range for people treated with auricular therapy in our office is from 1 month to 90 + yrs. old.

Where did it begin?

Auricular therapy has a long history in China dating back to 3000 B.C. All recorded systems of classical Acupuncture are attributed to the Chinese medical text, the Yellow Emperor's classic of internal medicine, compiled between 206BCE and 220CE. The first documented application made in the United States was made in 1973 for clinical work by Dr. Michael Smith at Lincoln Hospital in New York, in which auricular acupuncture was successfully performed for withdrawing addicts from opiate drugs, crack cocaine, alcohol and nicotine. It is still used to this day for such cases.
